Spieth frustrated after missing out on Tour Championship

To say Justin Rose was dealing with some mixed emotions after his finish at the BMW Championship on Monday would probably be the understatement of the year.

Ultimately, Rose's bogey on the same par four 20 minutes later was one to forget, but by then the achievement he will always remember was cast.

The Texan, without a win this season, shot a one-over 71 in Philadelphia on Friday and the decision to move the final round to Monday, rather than stop it at 54 holes due to inclement weather, offered him another chance to climb the FedEx Cup playoff rankings.

The disappointment of not winning the tournament at Aronimink was eased by Rose's rise to the top of the rankings for the first time, where he surpassed American Dustin Johnson.

How exactly do you process missing a short par putt for victory at a major FedEx Cup event and going on to lose to Keegan Bradley in a play-off, but still being crowned the new World No 1 for the first time in your career?

In winning his fourth career PGA Tour title, Bradley took home $1.62 million for his extra day of work, the biggest payday of his professional career.

The pair finished one shot ahead of Americans Xander Schauffele and Billy Horschel. Rory McIlroy (68) finished two shots behind, while Tiger Woods (65) was three back. "World Number 1. Thank you so much to my family, friends & everybody that has helped me achieve this incredible goal", Rose posted on Twitter.

Spieth began the year ranked second in the world but has dropped to 10th after failing to win and posting just five top-10 finishes.

"The belly putter was a tougher transition than I thought, and I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while".

Jordan Spieth was the most prominent player to miss out.

It took him almost four years before he won for the first time and he went 12 years before winning on the PGA Tour.

"It's not the way I have normally started the playoffs but I'm still in a good position and, mathematically, everyone at the Tour Championships can win the FedExCup", Day said.

Spieth did not add a new event, and he has only played in 23 tournaments this season.
